Wii Remote With MotionPlus Built-In Launches in Japan Next Month
Posted by Trevor Chan
Five colours to choose from, and a new Nunchuk too
Last week's Nintendo conference was undoubtedly all about the 3DS but with all the new standards the handheld is about to set, what about the other pieces of hardware that Nintendo's working on? Since the rather puzzling box-art of FlingSmash was added to Gamestop's product page, we've been waiting for official word from Nintendo and now it's come via the company's Japanese website.
The Wii Remote with MotionPlus built-in will be launching in Japan on 11th November and will be priced at ¥3,800, which just so happens to be the price of the standard remotes. The new "Wii Remote Plus" will be launching in a variety of colours; allowing gamers to choose between the white, black, blue, red, or pink variants.
On the same day, Nintendo will be replacing the standard remotes that come bundled with the console with this new Wii Remote Plus. The Wii Nunchuk will be getting a new splash of colour too as Nintendo releases the red version to join the already available white and black models. All nunchuks will be priced at ¥1,800 with this new red model sure to go nicely with the recently announced red Wii console.
